This work contributes to the discussion on the meaning of folktales, which are taken entirely as seriously as mainstream fiction, and are seen as a continuum with modern literary fantasy, arguing that ultrafiction have a wider range than either modernism or realism.
Why fantasy?; the good girl, the clever girl and Bluebeard; Proteus, the figure three and how the world began; moral tales from Arabia; the double (origins); the double in Kieslowski and Kipling; stallions and androgynes; advice on how to ruin a novel, or, Modernism, Realism and Fantastic; how big is the mind?; Utopia and the shadow of death; two modern Utopias (the automaton and the feminist); infinite questions - awe (not omitting time); fantasy as philosophy, or, Stanislaw Lem.
